The Argentine striker could feature in the Premier League clash against Wolves.
Manchester City are confident that Sergio Aguero would return to the action sooner than expected.
According to reports, the Argentine striker would turn up for the opening game against Wolves after making a speedy recovery from the knee surgery in June.
The 32-year-old was expected to miss the opening few games for Man City after undergoing knee surgery three months ago.
However, Aguero has been swift in his recovery, and the Citizens believe that they could get the services of the veteran striker for next week’s clash.
Aguero’s absence came as a timely blow for Pep Guardiola’s side last season, but Gabriel Jesus has been brilliant in the Argentine’s absence. The Brazilian striker came up with goods the previous season, but that couldn’t prevent City from going trophyless.
Aguero’s return would be a major boost for Man City as they are set to challenge for the title this season.
The former Atletico Madrid man had netted 16 goals in 24 goals last season, finding his 400th goal of his career in 3-1 win against Bournemouth.
Aguero has a contract running until next summer, and it remains to be seen whether he would continue beyond that.
Citizens would face tough-looking Wolves in their Premier League opening game next week. Ferran Torres, the new signing of City, could also feature in the game. The Spaniard comes after an impressive season with Valencia followed up by the senior team debut in the Nations League.
